Librivox's weekly poetry project for the week of March 5, 2006: Sonnet 130, by William Shakespeare.
LibriVox volunteers bring you seventeen different readings of Shakespeare's Sonnet 130. This sonnet offers a look into the Elizabethan ideal of womanly beauty, then turns it on its head with wry realism. Then, as now, real beauty is inside. (Summary by Fox in the Stars)
